Thankfully, Jaya has an uncle who chose not to see his niece the same way the rest of his family did. He saw a young girl with potential and enrolled her at an early age in one of our schools! She flourished in mind, body, and spirit.And this last year, while her home descended into chaos, generous donors like you have made sure Jaya’s education was never interrupted. She is almost done with a degree that will change the trajectory of her life forever! But her story continues to unfold - and so we must continue to fight for her. Together, we can promise Jaya that tomorrow will be better than today. By making a donation to our Spring Promise appeal, you are making sure nothing disrupts a child’s future: not an alcoholic father; not discrimination, and certainly not a global pandemic.www.dfnusa.org/spring_social/ ...

Look out for part 2 tomorrow! ... See MoreSee Less
